We are delighted to be able to share this fantastic renovation opportunity in one of London's most iconic industrial conversions. Built in 1897, the Spratt's Complex in Poplar was once the largest pet food factory in the world. It was here that the world's first dog biscuits were produced. During the Second Boer War, four million biscuits a week were made for British soldiers. After the factory closed in 1969, it lay empty and abandoned for many years until its successful transformation into live-work units between 1985 and 1989. Limehouse Cut is one of six buildings at the Spratt's Complex. Located on the third floor is this generous property, currently configured as two residences with separate kitchens and offering exciting possibilities as a single dwelling and truly unique warehouse home. Classic warehouse features abound throughout the property, with large expanses of exposed brickwork, high ceilings supported by substantial steel columns and original Crittall windows. The principal living area currently features a flagstone floor and open-plan kitchen crafted from reclaimed timber for a modern rustic look. Crittall doors lead to a large private rooftop patio with dramatic views over the Spratt's Complex to Canary Wharf as well as access to the communal roof garden.
In our opinion, the full potential of this property is yet to be realised. Viewings can be arranged to include a member of our interior design studio, who will be happy to discuss ideas for a complete transformation.
The property is accessed via security gates and has a demised parking space in the secure underground car park. Langdon Park DLR is just a few minutes' walk away, for direct transportation to both Canary Wharf and Bank. Shoreditch and Victoria Park are within easy reach, providing a fabulous selection of evening and weekend social haunts.
"We bought this great space when the Spratt's Complex was originally converted, and it has been in my family since then. We have all loved it here because of the building's wonderful features and character, as well as its location and views. Many of the other residents have become real friends and there is a strong 'village' community feeling. Transport links are very good, and the local area has an exceptional market and shops, as well as two 'outstanding' primary schools and an exemplary health centre, all within a few minutes' walk. We will be sad to leave."
